Like all jam recipes, this one boils furiously and produces lots of foam at its peak cooking temp. The cook is well-advised to put a drip bowl under the pyrex bowl's spout, so that the jam doesn't boil up and over the sides, all over the microwave oven. I had to cook it for the full 18 minutes, and even then, it's a little thin. Otherwise, works well.
